was doing because he had energy. obama had no energy. with the obama -- with the obama debate, with mitt, there was no question as to who won. it wasn't like -- in fact, obama's people didn't even show up. and with this one, you know, at least people said, hey, they each had some very, very strong points. and they -- whether you liked the job that biden did or not, gret ahe was probably pretty effective at a minimum from the base. so the word over at nbc and the nbc studios, which is where a lot of this is emanating, was that it was a 50/50 debate, both people did very well. you didn't hear that with the mitt romney/obama debate. that was a rout. >> greta: all right. the next mitt romney/president obama debate is next week. what do you expect president obama's going to do in light testify fact that he -- you know, he had a bad time last week? >> i think there is tremendous pressure on him. i really do. i don't think there is pressure on romney. there is always pressure. but i think there is tremendous pressure on president obama to perform because if he doesn't, it's going to be devastat
the debate, obama had a lead of 3.6 percentage points on average. in the seven polls that had been released so far in the week after the debate, romney has an average lead of 1.3 percentage points. that's a net turnaround of about 5 percentage points, which is very significant in race this close. there are some commentators who are saying the race is back where it was before the conventions. i don't think that's right if you look at the data. romney is in a stronger position now than he was in in august. >> so is romney, is it fair to say romney is actually leading or is this essentially a tie? >> it's essentially a tie right now. the data is so close. but romney was behind by a field goal, now he's kicked a field goal and we have a tie race going into the final weeks. >> what voter groups have moved in the last three weeks? are you talking about independents, are you talking about specific demographic groups? who has moved? >> well, one group that hasn't moved are the strong partisans. democrats and republicans who turn out are going to vote for their own nominee. the key statistic to watc
governor romney lied? >> i think he was dishonest. >> jon: and following failed debate performance, obama campaign revs up their spin in machine. >> how they can justify this video caused this attack. it was a terrorist attack. >> jon: congress investigates the terrorist attack in benghazi getting details. are the media interested now? candidates' wives working hard for media attention. are they getting fair treatment? and what does this photo tell us about media bias? on the panel this week, judy miller, cal thomas, jing pinkerton and fox news political analyst juan williams. i'm jon scott. fox news watch is on right now. >> jon: big event thursday night a one night only showdown between the candidates for vice president. it was highly anticipated by the political press. first question out the gate was the controversy surrounding terrorist attacks. >> this benghazi issue would be tragedy in and of itself but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem, what we are watching on our tv screens the unraveling of the obama foreign policy which is making it more chaotic and us less safe
that really affected the obama-romney debate was that romney came across as somebody with some stature. you could really visualize him in the white house. fast forward to the debate between paul ryan and vice president died in and uc paul ryan not as vice-president, but perhaps as the head of management and budget. [crosstalk] >> the girl wants to say something. >> why should she be allowed? >> well, because she should. i thought it was interesting that ryan was talking about the economic stuff. he has his own, some of which you can criticize for his veracity, but he did fine. when he got to foreign policy, you could almost see the flip cards in his brain. it has no sign of real knowledge other than having crammed for the exam. >> i am glad you brought up foreign-policy. >> we did not know they wanted more security. >> what we are witnessing as we turn on our television screens these days is the absolute unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> martha raddatz began by asking about the attack on the benghazi. dide of been gauz turns out that this was not a protest that was hijacked by extr
in 1991. this thing goes deep, folks. [ laughter ] 21 years ago barack obama attended debate moderator. martha raddatz's wedding. who knows what favors were exchanged with an eye toward the inevitable future debate. they all knew it was coming. he knew that. panini press would pay off eventually for the running mate he hadn't met yet. [ laughter ] >> stephen: for twenty years, every time she's made a monte cristo she's whispered "i owe you, barack obama." [ laughter ] and sure, obama was actually just a law school classmate of raddatz's husband julius genachowski who raddatz divorced in 1997. but what woman doesn't love doing favors for her ex-husband's friends? [ laughter ] so clearly the debate -- the whole thing is meaningless until ryan wins. point is, everything about obama is suspicious. unfortunately, not as suspicious as it used to be. in the good old days, we had a new obama scandal every week. he was a secret muslim; wasn't born in america; doesn't have a birth certificate; and was trained by joseph stalin, jeremiah wright, and general grievous. [ laughter ] [cheers and appla
, it was to pump up the base. he did that job this week after obama's disappointing debate. and we saw obama here this week. this was a very busy week in politics. and it is all about enthusiasm in the base in places like san francisco, northern california. if voters here on the democratic side are not enthusiastic about getting out there for obama, if he doesn't have -- if they don't have his back, he's got trouble in congressional races and fund-raising and everything else. an we saw his events in san francisco this week. we were inside a couple of those events. and, boy, they turned out, they were very excited and he seemed much more fired up. i have to say the last couple of times we've seen him, he has seemed a little too down key, low key, almost sleep walking it seems through some of these events. this week in san francisco in the wake of that debate, he got such terrible reviews, i think he's gotten the message and certainly joe biden has gotten the message that they better pump up the energy. >> san franciscans still don't mind writing those big checks? >> susie tauompkins one of the g d
always said on the trail was he could not wait for his first debate with president obama to take some of these criticisms to him face to face and in that first debate, he really delivered on that promise. he took it to the president and the confidence he had been building over the years has been growing ten-fold in the last ten days. >> a.b., whoever you think won the v.p. debate, both ryan and joe biden won in terms of politics. the question at this point is how do the guys aet the top of the ticket, how do they capitalize on that? >> how do they move forward? >> mitt romney has to do what he did last week again or ten days ago. he needs to do that again. if you watched mitt romney he wasn't a good debater at all. i don't think he was in '07 or '08 or '11. but, boy, this year he's turned into a terrific debater. i think president obama has the greatest challenge. he's not joe biden. he's never given in the campaign so far as passionate the way joe biden did the other night. he has to do that. he has to be as convincing, probably more. he has to look like he wants it, like he's enjoyi
that first debate, top obama campaign advisers said they were going to review and readvise their strategy. they're not giving us a whole lot of specifics about what that means but if you look at the first debate which was describedpy many as lackluster, they say they didn't seem to even gauge with mitt romney and wasn't aggressive, it stands to reason that's what they're going to work on, getting the president to come up with shorter, sharper, crisper answers to some of mitt romney's criticisms and be more aggressive in his own right. his greatest challenge is to not come off as being profess sorial. you can imagine over the next few days that's what they're going to be focused on. some things will stay the same. his debate partner will be john kerry and the coaches on the sidelines will include top obama campaign strategist david axelrod as well as consultants bob barnett, bob crane and anita walker. >> i can't remember where i read thr or heard this but someone was basically arguing the last time around it was difficult because the president is not one of these guys that takes criticism
and their arguments in a way that barack obama frankly didn't do in the previous debate. he had energy and vigor which i think is what democrats were looking for. i think you saw joe biden last night maybe not everybody has seen joe biden over the years in debates and other places, but i felt that was the joe biden that i know. and i don't think there was any pretense. as he said, i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> laura: middle class has been buried in the last four years. that helps the republicans. >> he had a good night. democrats are very happy. as you are well aware the republicans are pretty happy today, too. both sides got what they wanted. >> let's go to you, chris, i'm looking at some the polls. cnn did an instant poll and it showed that 48% of the people who watched thought that really paul ryan had the better of the debate. 44% biden. i think within the margin of error. it was pretty time nevertheless, let's say paul ryan had done to biden what biden did to paul ryan just on the gesturing. just on the laughing. how do you think the media today would be playing all of this? how do
editor, dan, and jason riley. >> he did energize the base. after last week's debate performance by obama, democrats were concerned. they were worried. i think they were less so after this vice presidential debate, and i think that was joe biden's primary concern, energizing the party again. >> how did he specifically do that. >> he mention add lot of things that people wanted or democrats had wanted. the president mentioned last week mentioned the 47% remark and auto bailout, and that's what they wanted to hear and he served up a lot of red meat last night. >> how about paul ryan hold up? >> his job was to go in there, meet all these accusations, and everyone knew what was coming. this was going to be joe biden just lambasting him right and left. so his job was to go out there, meet this for the obama campaign strategy, refute it, call them out on it, and generally not put in any big errors that would in any way dominate the discussion in the days after. and to that extent he did do that. >> one of the features of this debate was the biden mannerisms and his behavior. biden-interruptous
? >> andrea: yeah. >> dana: would vit been a base debate if obama had done better week before? because biden is trying to get out of the deficit that obama created in the first -- >> bob: that's exactly right. >> dana: biden had a different job last night. actually paul ryan's job was to appeal to seniors and to women. i think he nailed that. and so, whereas some of the other lines he might not have won the point, actually overall he won overall with his base, too. >> andrea: if the strategy is to rally the base, the base is women. the democratic base. war on women. they went in to this, pew research found that 51% of voters already had an unfavorable view of the vice president. he did himself no favors. >> eric: that is an important poll. i bet that number goes up after that. he was not likable. everything he did, the smilin smiling, smugness, he cut off paul ryan 82 times in 90 minutes. that is almost impossible to do. the other thing is "wall street journal" points this out. he was on the attack. they call it bully versus the wonk. he was on the attack. meaning joe biden, all night. every
straight weeks before the disastrous presidential debate for president obama that the race was other than. president obama had already won it, just as women were tuning in they were told don't bother, it's already over. so that debate actually mattered more than it normally would because they encountered an a rot -- mitt romney they weren't expected an barack obama they had never been seen. the third reason is that women, this whole matter of abortion is porn to women but it's not in the top five in anyone's polling. it's a great conversation spark and it's very important to women but it's also backed in the cake. meaning those swing women already know where romney, ryan are on abortion and where obama-biden are on abortion to a large degree. they're waiting to hear and more importantly to see something outside of that issue. and let's just see, does anybody ever talk about men's issues. what are these women's issues. all issues are men's issues. i want to put out that i think all issues should be women's issues. >> brown: that si a fair point. i always think about asking as a general que
debate so there may be a few jokes at his expense. president obama will do the show on comedy central this coming thursday, two days after the second debate with mitt romney. >>> superstar bruce springsteen is on the road this week. he's singing the praises of president obama. and on thursday the boss will be joined by former president bill clinton, another boss so to speak, at an event in ohio. it will be free to the public. >>> well, the gop ticket is busy crisscrossing the crucial battle ground state of ohio again today. moments ago vice-president nomin nominee paul ryan wrapped up a campaign stop in youngstown. >> reporter: a good saturday to you, alex witt, from the battle ground state of ohio which has become in large part a home away from home for both the obama and the romney campaigns. they're spending a lot of time here, a lot of money here because of the role that ohio may ultimately play and who wins this election come november 6. last night mitt romney and paul ryan played to a large crowd in lancaster, ohio. there was a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of excitement in the air.
voting for (back-- barack obama after the debate in the battleground poll, for example, by 10 points. and so women are still support og bama, men are still supporting mitt romney. and in the battleground states that's even more. the biggest difference in the polls, were how energized the democratic women were. a lot of unmarried women, a lot of younger women were not very energized after that first debate. and that's where i think vice president biden was a home run. i think that these women wanted to see someone stand up for the policies they believe in, stand up for a role for government, call malarkey when it is. and i think you're going to see the democratic base of women far more energized. and you're going to see women then turn out in higher numbers which is very, very important to democric ictories. >> brown: kellyanne conway, let me come back to what you picked up. you could pick up on that but also what you said on how we approach these things. how we think about women's issues per sement because we keep hearing that the campaign could well hinge on women voters. do you thi
political landscape as we head into tuesday's second debate between president obama and governor romney. poll after poll shows momentum building behind the romney/ryan tukt and there's pressure on the president now t wrap up his game for the three-week sprint to election day. let's bring in our correspondent, we're getting reaction to the vice presidential debate, more comments coming in. but the president has his mission cut out for him right now. dan? >> he really does. we just have to look back to right after the debate where the president turned up his volume, strongly aggressively going after his gop opponents. but what we saw this week at the university of miami on thursday at a big rally there was the president even turning up the volume a bit more. attacking mitt romney for what the president says was his changing position on a whole host of issues, including taxes. take a listen. >> he's trying to go through an extreme makeover. after running for more than a year in which he called himself severely conservative, mitt romney is trying to convince you that he was severely kidding
doing what obama had not done in the previous debate, getting all of those issues on the table, defending the record and really going on the attack. that debate was about mitt romney and mitt romney's proposal and secondarily about the president and his record. >> jennifer: the interesting thing about it is than even though jim lehrer was a much looser moderator, and president obama could have jumped in more quickly, he didn't. martha raddatz ran a tighter ship. do you think that makes a difference, who the moderator is? >> i do. and i think you saw two really contrasting styles there. march that's approach was much more journalistic. much more of an interview style. even the focus and content were about things happening in the knew. so i did think that was pretty effective. >> jennifer: i think so too. she waited -- i thought she made a curious choice in waiting until the end of the debate to pose a different series of question about abortion and religion. do you think that changed the tone at the end? >> i do and i think that was her attempt to take th
. >> jennifer: who do you think performs better in the townhall setting at the next debate? >> probably obama but not by much. and i don't think it's obama's particularly favorite thing, it's just that romney is awkward in front of the real people types. >> jennifer: we're all excited about the next one. it's just like the final games of these baseball series. alan schroeder, thanks so much for joining us again inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> jennifer: all of you political junkies out there, it's friday night, i'm in new york and you are in "the war room." and the right's reaction to joe biden's performance equalled a four year old having a meltdown. any time kid rock and scene penn get together and the police are not called? well, it is a win for everybody. ♪ i'm born (vo) cenk uygur is many things. >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our

presidential debate, which depending on who you ask is either pulling president obama's case for re-election off the critical list or vindicated mitt romney's choice as paul ryan as running mate. depends what side of the political aisle you stand on. keeping them honest, each debater had moments that didn't quite stand up to closer scrutiny. first, paul ryan on the stimulus, which vice president biden called him on. >> they said that right now if we just passed the stimulus, the economy would grow at 4%. it's growing at 1.3. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why -- >> you did ask for stimulus money, correct? >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. that's what we do. we do that for all constituents applying for grants. >> i love that. i love that. this is such a bad program and he writes me a letter saying -- writes the dep
